"I joined the military right out of high school. When I returned home from service and started seeking employment in healthcare I realized I needed to be certified. I pursued my NHA certification for Phlebotomy and Medical Assisting and passed. My NHA certification gave me the tools, motivation and knowledge to help me on my journey to success. And today, I am studying again-this time to be a doctor." - Oscar M., CPT/CCMA
